Bleasdale Vineyards is Langhorne Creek's founding winery and Australia's second oldest family-owned and operated winery, established in 1850 by English migrant Frank Potts, who arrived in South Australia on the Buffalo in 1836. The vineyards are situated on the flood plains of the Bremer river. Frank Potts left behind him a wonderful legacy that continues today. His sons and grandsons have operated and built up the winery, and Bleasdale is solely owned and operated by fourth- and fifth-generation members of the Potts family.
Bremerview Shiraz pays homage to Frank Potts’ system of locks and weirs, constructed in the 1850’s and 60’s along the River Bremer, to capture winter floodwaters and irrigate vines. This long standing and robust system for controlling floodwater occasionally comes into use when rainfall is high and the river flows breach the established floodbank.
An expressive, medium to full bodied wine showing intense lifted dark berry fruits and spice. The palate is vibrant with dense blackberry and fresh plum flavours complemented by liquorice and pepper spice.

Destemmed, 15% whole berry, open-fermented, 12 days on skins, matured in French oak (15% new) for 12 months. Gold medals Melbourne and National Wine Shows '16. Bright crimson-purple; a masterful play between luscious Langhorne Creek fruit and a spicy, savoury finish. The result is a medium-bodied shiraz that holds interest from the first sip to the finish and aftertaste of the last sip. It's a needle stuck in the groove to comment on the dizzying value for money. Drink to: 2030; Price: $20.00; Alcohol: 14%; Rating: 95 Points & Special Value Star; James Halliday; Wine Companion
Yes. This is a goer. The oak feels a bit cedary and sawdusty but in effect it just adds a bit of sex appeal. It’s plummy and blackberried with mint and iodine highlights. It’s a solid red with a bit extra. In the zone. Tasted: March 2017; Alcohol: 14%; Price: $20; Closure: Screwcap; Drink: 2017-2023+; Rating: 91 Points; Campbell Mattinson; The Wine Front
